Why it's not enough to be 'busy'

Realtor Notebook

What is busy?

It is easy to be busy. Why do we admire busy people?

Most American adults who are employed are busy; there is nothing special and nothing that should be admired about being busy.

I like to go back over my day and look to see what it was that I actually accomplished, that has or will lead to revenue.

I could stay busy 16 hours a day without ever working in my business or earning a dime, yet at the same time it would feel like "work." I don’t work so that I can stay busy; I work so I can pay the bills.
